MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A field of 200 golfers are on their way to Myrtle Beach for the inaugural March Championship on March 8 – 10, 2015.

Golfers will have the opportunity to win more than $10,000 in flight prizes and on-course contest awards. The tournament will hold a welcome party Saturday night, and will end the event with an awards dinner on Tuesday evening. Each participant will receive a welcome gift for attending the tournament.
